Hi to all Pinoy AU pips, we have a new up coming FREE Webinar for you. In partnership with Visa Consort, we bring you, "Skills Assessment - the make of break Webinar" online seminar. It will be on 14th March 2019 at 8-9pm Manila Time. Limited to 50 slots, so hurry up, more info here .
Happy 2019 sa lahat! New update lang... we are planning to revamp the site in the 1st - 2nd quarter of this year, time to change the very old look ng site. Salamat sa lahat ng support, especially sa mga loyal na bumabalik at moderator na walang sawang sumusuporta sa site.

  • Hello @chococrinkle! oo nga kaya ngdalawang isip din ako knina, since parang malabo nman si NSW I decided na i-suspend ko nalang muna si EOI. :) Hello @Hendro, parehas tayo. Nauna nag submit ang agent ko ng EOI sa NSW before SA. Pero nauna ako nakat…
  • Thanks, @evievask! Yes, really fortunate to have received another state nomination. God bless too. :D
  • hi @gillianLeoh2017 kami rin may eoi na sa 190 lodged april 11 this year at 75+5, max experience points and superior English. While nasa priority list din kami ng occupation ng nsw, looks like we really have no other choice but to wait for invitatio…

  • @heero_yuy51 Thank you for pointing that out (by the way, girl po ako hehe). Yes, I see your point. In fact, after giving it much thought, I've decided to just go for SA. I was just worried na baka mas kaunti ang opportunities ng Graphic Designers d…
  • @Heprex Thanks for the link ha. Weird kasi my colleague received his invitation already sa NSW pero sa pagkaka alam ko parehas kami ng occupation. Unless there was a miscom with his agent. Hinid ko pa kasi nakukuha yung ibang details from him. As fo…

  • @kristinejuvel Thanks! Well, like I mentioned in my previous post above, I watched a lot of YouTube videos, mostly E2Language. Also, if you can, get the Gold Kit – it helped me a lot because it's a simulation of the actual test. Take it ahead of tim…
  • @shuroro Tama! :)
  • @Blackmamba Naku, salamat po. Grabe din ang kaba ko simula pa last week kasi on and off ang pagrereview at practice ko (gawa ng nature ng work ko, panay OT-y). Yes, good luck sa atin! :D
  • Hey guys! I took the exam yesterday and I just received my scores. First time taker. Before my actual exam, I took the Scored Test A last Saturday and Scored Test B last Sunday. I was supposed to take these tests like a month before my scheduled e…
  • @kaidenMVH Hmm. Fair enough. Thanks for sharing the link! I just got back home from RELC. I took down notes during Summarize Spoken Test instead of typing. We were 12 in total. Crossing my fingers....
  • @shuroro My handwriting sucks but when I took both scored tests, I managed to read most of what I wrote except for few ones I couldn't decipher. Haha.
  • Hey guys, tanong ko lang. During summarize spoken text (Listening section), meron po ba sa inyo na nagtype dun sa text box directly as the speaker is talking (as opposed to writing on the notepad)? I tried it earlier while taking Scored Test B.

  • @eww14 Thanks sa info! I went there earlier to check the location. Yup, for sure ineexpect ko na there will be background noise regardless which exam centre I go to. Just wondering which among the two centres have more test takers at a time. Bukas n…
  • @Blackmamba My schedule on Monday is 2pm. I see. Just have to mentally prepare myself for that. Thanks for the info again! :D
  • @Blackmamba Got it. I was just wondering which among the 2 test centres accommodate the most test-takers. A little worried sa background noise. I'll just try my best to block the noise during the exam. Thanks!

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
